Red Steel 2 is a complete overhaul of its disappointing predecessor. Presented in smoothly animated, vibrant cel-shaded graphics, it ditches the Yakuza setting for some alternate Old West inhabited by ronin, biker gangs, and near future sci-fi technology. The nameless protagonist is modeled after Clint Eastwood’s Man with No Name archetype popularized in spaghetti westerns, just a lot more ninja-like.
Finally! A break from some big ass triple A release. Not that this week doesn’t have anything worth looking into. We’ve got a sequel whose first entry sucked. We’ve got yet another sequel whose first sequel doesn’t suck nearly as much. And we’ve got a deluge of DS games being released this week. Looks like things are finally getting back to normal.
Welcome one and welcome all to the recap to cap off your week with. If it happened during the week you’ll no doubt re-hear about it here, with a bit of a sarcastic and witty twist of course. They say hindsight is 20/20 so lets look back at the stories that broke this week that made us laugh, cry, gasp and say WHY GAWD, WHY?!?!?
